Guaidó and Claver-Carone planned from the White House assassination of President Maduro

Former deputies Juan Guaidó and Julio Borges, together with other leaders of the extreme right wing such as Carlos Vecchio and Mauricio Claver-Carone, discussed at the White House, United States, on February 5, 2020, the assassination of the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, and called for a military invasion against Venezuela, denounced this Friday the Venezuelan ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Samuel Moncada.

Through his account on the Twitter social network, Moncada pointed out that they convinced former President Donald Trump that only an action by US troops, such as an invasion or a clandestine action against Maduro, were the real options to take control of Venezuela.

The Venezuelan diplomat quotes the statements of the former Secretary of Defense of the Trump administration, Mark Esper.

In his statement, he asserted that this approach responded to the need to make effective the US plan «because working with the Venezuelans was very complicated”.

In this sense, they considered that the direct military invasion was the most preferable, because a mercenary invasion from Colombia would be complicated; However, Guaidó and Claver-Carone (current president of the Inter-American Development Bank) run a special mercenary operation similar to (the one performed for) the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse:

The answer is given by Esper himself, three months after the Guaidó meeting took place the “Gideon” operation to assassinate President Maduro with a group of mercenaries trained and equipped in Colombia”, said the Venezuelan diplomat.

Operation Gideon was carried out from Colombia in the early morning of May 3, 2020. It was an alleged invasion along the coast of La Guaira, but it was frustrated by the security agencies of the Venezuelan State, and its purpose was to kidnap and assassinate the president. Nicolás Maduro and other authorities.

According to Esper’s statement, the US government was willing to carry out a direct or mercenary invasion against Venezuela, but they had expectations whether the opposition leadership “could ensure that Venezuelans would fight.

Guaidó, Borges and Vecchio proposed that «it would be easier and faster if the US did it for us”.

«Esper asked again: ‘If some of those Venezuelans could be trained and equipped by the US, would they be willing to fight?’ He never had a clear answer: ‘They told me it was very complicated and would take a long time», said Moncada.

«This is why Trump always thought that Guaidó was ‘weak’, unable to replace President Maduro, whom he saw as ‘strong’. Trump despised Guaidó because they went to beg US soldiers to invade his country while Maduro was fighting the invasion”, added the Venezuelan diplomat.

In another series of messages published this Thursday, the Venezuelan ambassador announced that on June 9, 2020, at a meeting of the National Security Council, Robert O’Brien, adviser to Trump, proposed a military attack on the José Antonio Anzoategui Refining Complex.

The objective was to paralyze the oil economy and, with chaos and popular suffering, overthrow Maduro and impose Juan Guaidó as head of government.
